Life 'n Balance
Naturopathic medicine is a unique and comprehensive approach to optimizing health and treating illness. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the body to heal itself by identifying and treating the root cause of a particular condition. It is based on the understanding that the human body is a complex mechanism held in a delicate balance through natural processes such as metabolism, optimal cellular function and efficient organ function. Symptoms of illness signal that our balance is disturbed. Each person has an innate healing power, and the role of the Naturopathic Doctor is to remove obstructions to this healing power and facilitate it through gentle, non-toxic therapies.
Naturopathic Doctors look at the patient as a whole, considering the physical, emotional and mental aspects of their health; and by doing this will consider the many different possible underlying causes.
The role of the Naturopathic Doctor is to educate, empower and motivate patients to take an active role in the their own health. Rather than focus on illness, in naturopathic medicine, the naturopathic doctor and patient, embark on a journey of wellness together.
